Lesson planning in line with the new Primary National Curriculum!

Outstanding grammar lessons are not about teaching children the mechanics of grammar but fostering a curiosity about language, words and clauses when explored within a meaningful context. This book offers practical ideas and lesson plans to help you plan and teach lessons that motivate, engage and inspire pupils to use grammar accurately and creatively to produce writing that is fluid, cohesive and purposeful. It will also help you to teach grammar confidently and effectively by addressing your own grammar questions and providing essential subject knowledge. The lesson ideas have all been tried and tested in the classroom, and you can adapt the lessons to teach other aspects of grammar or change the focus of the learning objective to reflect the needs of your classroom.  Did you know that this book is part of the Lessons in Teaching series?

Another useful book for students to look at when considering teaching grammar.

This book is good for aspiring teachers, it also served as a good refresher for new undergraduate students on the courses whose first language is not English.

This book takes an in depth look at the historical perspective influencing the development of grammar in the English language.The 'commentary' sections of the book are a great asset to busy teachers in the classroom but have not adopted it for this course as I was looking for a simpler guide for students on this professional studies course. However this is a great resource for the less confident teacher of grammar in the primary school.

This book will support student teachers both in clarifying key areas of grammar subject knowledge from the National Curriculum for English and support them as they seek to identify engaging and contextualised teaching approaches to support children's writing.

Teaching grammar in an effective and meaningful way is a challenge for many primary teachers, and this book provides an accessible and practical guide to grammar teaching. It will be an invaluable resource for students.

Purposeful and effective teaching of grammar is a significant challenge for many primary teachers. This book provides an accessible and practical guide to grammar teaching, and will be an invaluable resource for students.

The teaching of grammar becomes meaningful and effective when contextualised in purposeful activity that empowers children, providing comprehension, choice and control as readers and writers. Horton and Bingle make a clear case for this approach, providing accessible subject knowledge support and imaginative exemplar lessons.

Mrs Joy Mower

This is a useful guide for teaching grammar that also underpins subject knowledge for trainee teachers.
